Do you know how an interdisciplinary research project is carried out? What are the potential benefits of this type of collaborative approach?

If you are interested in interdisciplinary research but need a starting point, then this Cambridge Language Sciences Workshop might do the trick.  This free event, designed by and for PhD students working in the field of language, aims to increase awareness and understanding of interdisciplinary research by bringing people and minds together for a methodology workshop at Queens’. Our invited speakers, Professor Robert Foley (Leverhulme Institute of Human Evolutionary Studies), Dr Joanne Taylor (MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit) and Mr Andrew Thwaites (Neurolex Group, Department of Psychology) will provide us with excellent examples of interdisciplinary research by sharing their work.
